Meet Dr. Oakley, Northern Canada's Yukon Vet
Showing on National Geographic Wild, Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet shares the encounters of veterinarian, Dr. Michelle Oakley as she makes house calls across thousands of square miles in the Yukon. This is Northern Canada's wild country, and these are not your typical house calls.
In upcoming episode's Dr. Oakley visits the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, where she tries to help a reindeer named Skippy, who has had two surgeries, but his umbilical hernia continues to reappear.
The challenges continue for Dr. Oakley on her home clinic visits, in which she faces with an angry cat that may have diabetes, a dog with an uncomfortable anal gland problem, and give a pedicure and beak trim to an exotic 38-year-old blue and gold parrot.
Often accompanied by her teenage daughters, Dr. Oakley and her daughter, Sierra, perform a checkup on an 8-month-old Leonberger puppy weighing in at more than 100 pounds. They'll fight to keep a bighorn sheep alive, and check in on an orphaned bear with a raspy lung, who gets nervous around new people!
For Dr. Oakley this is just the start of her busy schedule across the frigid, remote landscapes of Northern Canada. What animal emergencies await today? Find out by following their adventures on the
National Geographic Wild series, Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet.
